梅根-紐伯格謀殺案被告告訴陪審員他小時候被強姦過

萊斯特刑事法庭被告知,被告患有創傷後應激障礙,在Coalville的家中襲擊受害者時 "失去控制"。

辯方稱,麥卡勒姆先生年輕時在大孩子手中遭受的虐待引發了創傷後應激障礙。

這位30歲的被告在為自己辯護時說,他在八九歲時在林地里被一個大男孩強姦。

麥卡勒姆先生告訴法庭,他曾與一群大孩子一起去萊斯特郡的惠特維克森林,在那裡他受到了攻擊。

他說。"我以為他們是我的朋友。他們對我很好。他們會給我買糖果。

羅斯-麥卡勒姆說,他小時候曾被斯蒂芬-比德曼攻擊過,後來他又強姦和謀殺了15歲的凱莉-海伍德。

麥卡勒姆先生還告訴陪審團,還有兩次他被住在附近的大孩子強迫在他家(位於Coalville的Windsor Close)的車庫裡進行性行為。

他在2016年被判處終身監禁,最低刑期為35年,2021年4月死於獄中,年僅28歲。

麥卡勒姆先生告訴法庭,當他被逼在車庫裡進行性行為時,比德曼就在那裡。

"麥卡勒姆先生說:"我當時想把褲子穿起來,但斯蒂芬用它鞭打我,說'你最好不要告訴任何人'。

法庭聽說,麥卡勒姆先生和來自紐尼頓的紐伯勒女士在他殺死她之前曾有過一段短暫的關係。

他們在萊斯特郡的Ibstock Brick公司相遇,她在那裡從事人力資源工作,而他是一名實驗室技術員。

他們安排在麥卡勒姆先生的家裡見面,當時他的父母不在,他勒死了她,割斷了她的喉嚨,並將她的屍體扔在伍德豪斯-伊夫附近的一條鄉村小路上的灌木叢中。

檢方說,麥卡勒姆先生繼續給紐伯勒女士發短信和打電話,假裝關心她,以掩蓋他的行蹤,並隱瞞他所做的事情。


Leicester Crown Court was told the defendant was suffering from PTSD and "lost control" when he attacked his victim at his home in Coalville.

The defence said the PTSD was triggered by abuse Mr McCullum suffered at the hands of older children when he was younger.

Giving evidence in his own defence, the 30-year-old defendant said was raped in woodland by an older boy when he was eight or nine.

Mr McCullum told the court he had gone with a group of older children to Whitwick Woods in Leicestershire where he was attacked.

He said: "I thought they were my friends. They were nice to me. They would buy me sweets.

Ross McCullum said he had been attacked as a child by Stephen Beadman, who would later go on to rape and murder 15-year-old Kayleigh Haywood

Mr McCullum also told the jury there were two other occasions where he was made to perform sexual acts in the garage of his home, in Windsor Close, Coalville, by older children who lived nearby.

He was jailed for life with a minimum term of 35 years in 2016 and died in prison in April 2021, aged 28.

Mr McCullum told the court Beadman was there when he had been made to perform sexual acts in the garage.

"I was trying to get my trousers back up but Stephen was whipping me with it saying 'you better not tell anyone'," said Mr McCullum.

The court has heard that Mr McCullum and Ms Newborough, from Nuneaton, had been in a short relationship before he killed her.

They had met at Ibstock Brick, in Ibstock Leicestershire, where she worked in human resources and he was a laboratory technician.

They had arranged to meet at Mr McCullum's home when his parents were out and he strangled her, cut her throat, and dumped her body in undergrowth by a country lane near Woodhouse Eaves.

The prosecution said Mr McCullum continued to text and call Ms Newborough's phone feigning concern for to cover his tracks and hid what he had done.
